How did it get to be September already (and the 7th even!)? We ended August with some fun and a first for O...After a week of a loose tooth that she discovered on my birthday it finally came out after a trip to the apple orchard.

My training has been decent despite the crazy long work hours but I have decided that a fall marathon will not be in the future next year! This year my plan is just gaining my endurance back but when I want to race I can't fully train through the long work days of summer. I am running 3-4 days a week but lack energy to do any speedwork. My strength work is lacking, down to just 3 days a week.

September started with kindergarten open house. After a long debate on the best school fit for O and us as a family we went with the option that we had initially said no way too. In the end it will be the best fit considering the anxiety O has about new situations and changes. With this she has many familiar faces joining her and even two friends in her class.

This weekend was all about fun and ending summer with a bang! Ice cream, fun with neighbors, bonfires, movies, running and late night. I even got a 90 min massage this weekend.
Neighbor fun!
Today we are getting ready for the biggest change yet...Kindergarten! I am so ready for this and I know she is too.

September Goals

  • Develop consistent weekday school routine
  • Meal prep on Sunday and make 2 meals for the week
  • 1 more apple orchard trip
  • 5K in 22:00
  • Stick with my workouts
  • 200 miles in September
  • Track nutrition and focus on intake
  • Taper!
This week is the last big training week so far 10 miles done and 20-22 miler planned! 

What are your September goals? 


  1. Sounds like a great set of goals! I need to get back into meal prep mode again. Enjoy the taper later this month!
